Truckee River Legacy Trail Description

The Truckee River Legacy Trail follows the river's south side, providing scenic views and access to two recreational amenities: Truckee River Regional Park and Riverview Sports Park. The paved trail has recently been extended from the latter park to Glenshire Drive via a bridge over Martis Creek.

In the future, a westward extension to the trail will provide additional recreational access to Donner Memorial State Park.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available on the current west end of the trail in Truckee River Regional Park, off Brockway Road.

Truckee River Legacy Trail Reviews

It's such a beautiful trail. My only concern is that the dogs are not on leashes, they are allowed to run around freely. Yes they are adorable, playful whatever, but they have teeth!

Went biking with my 11 year old on 8.12.17, Saturday. We started at the trail head on the steep hill from the Truckee River Regional Park's parking lot. We rode a total of 8.36 miles downstream and back. The landscape, wildlife, countless bird species, river, and sky were a breath of fresh air for us. Segments of shady trees in between sunny spots to rest at as well as benches to sit on and take in the surrounding beauty. Bring lots of water and snacks. Highly recommended. #leaveonlyfootprints #packoutwhatyoupackin, #LoVEarth

This trail is beautiful! It runs along the Truckee river, away from roads and is a great ride for the entire family. It is fairly flat, and the Truckee river is gorgeous during this incredible spring thaw we are experiencing. There are bike rentals available in downtown Truckee at Bike Truckee.
